Artist Statement

Using my personal experience of being Mexican American and growing up in the city of New York. I take photographs of my household and commute as a diary of my everyday. I think about how the city life and how the people in my life have shaped the person I am today. Using my archive of photographs, I create surrealistic paintings. Surrealism is a tool that is used in my work to help narrate the movement, emotions, and colors. The use of specific objects as symbols is important in my work, which they may create a deeper personal connection to me and the work. They are often used as portraits. Through painting and collaging I create moments that have influenced me as a result of my every day in life, my commute from home to school, and work.
